Winston Churchill Statue and Big Ben, London, England, photo by John Ecker | pantheon photography

WINSTON CHURCHILL STATUE AND BIG BEN, WESTMINSTER, LONDON, ENGLAND:  In Parliament Square is the wonderful 1973 statue of Winston Churchill by artist Ivor Roberts-Jones.  Churchill was Britain’s WWII era Prime Minister certainly its greatest 20th century leader.  In this bronze Churchill, aka, ‘Winnie’ and the ‘British Bulldog’ faces Big Ben (actually, it’s St. Stephen’s Tower; Big Ben is the largest bell in the clock tower).  A visit to the nearby Churchill War Rooms is a must stop for any fan of Churchill and student of World War II history.  Shot handheld with a Nikon D40X, Nikkor 18-200 lens, at 60mm, 1/30 sec, f7.1, ISO 1600.
